Enjoy the tranquillity of the Snowdonia National Park from this peaceful rural site.

Our Bala Club campsite boasts an idyllic rural location just outside the eastern boundary of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and six miles north of the lake after which it is named. Surrounded by amazing scenery, Bala campsite is the ideal base for exploring the attractions of north Wales.

The pretty and secluded 50 pitch site is level and well maintained with a good range of facilities including toilets, showers, laundry, a small children’s play area and a small dog walk. A short drive away, the town of Bala offer a variety of shops, a petrol station and places to eat. Sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and fishing are all possible on Bala Lake and there are good walks and cycle routes from here too. Bala Lake Railway and the Ffestiniog Railways are great ways to take in the local scenery.

Less than an hour’s drive from Bala campsite is Snowdon, Wales’ highest peak. Scale its heights on foot or catch the train to the summit.

Local resorts with good sandy beaches include Prestatyn, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Harlech, Barmouth Fairbourne and Aberdovey. 

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

General feel of site is one of tiredness and neglect.

This review is for Bala

General feel of site is one of tiredness and neglect. Trees that previously added charm and ambience had been cut down, manager was quite proud of the tree felling. Our tent pitch was right next to waste disposal. so we had to contend with the pongs every time it was used. We had on previous occasions enjoyed our visit. Will not be returning to this site.

This is a lovely, secluded snd peaceful site, 4 miles from Lake Bala.

This review is for Bala

This is a lovely, secluded snd peaceful site, 4 miles from Lake Bala. The welcome was one of the warmest we have received anywhere. We picked our pitch and were taken there by the site manager. All pitches are level and spacious. However the Motorhome Waste Disposal Point is basic, to say the least, and unusable by all but small camper vans; it was impossible to get our motorhome up to the drain because it was on a raised plinth in the centre of the area. Any attempt to get a modern motorhome over this point would almost certainly result in damage to the vehicle. It was fortunate that we have a wastehog and could use that instead to 'decant' the grey water from our tank. Come on CCC - you must do better.
